PAK vs IRE: Here Is All You Need To Know About Ireland’s Tour To Pakistan

PAK vs IRE: The Ireland team will play their historic first-ever series in Pakistan. The visitors reached Lahore on 29 October and they had four days of practice in the lead-up to the ODI series as well. They will play a 3-match ODI series, followed by a 3-match T20I series starting on the 4th of November. The last T20I series will be played on the 18th of November as well. However, all of the matches will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore. Notably, the ODIs are part of the ICC Women’s Championship as well.

Ireland’s captain looks forward to the series ahead. She stated, “We couldn’t have asked for a better start to 2022, following the announcement of full-time contracts. We have a busy summer ahead and are greatly looking forward to the prospect of playing Pakistan in an away series.

“As a squad, we haven’t travelled to Pakistan before, but now having qualified for the ICC Women’s Championship we have been presented with this opportunity, one that no doubt will be a good challenge towards the end of the year. Having not played in Asian conditions for a few years now due to COVID-19, with a young squad this will be an invaluable opportunity as we are set to play more regularly in this part of the world over coming years,” she again shared.

Richard Holdsworth, the High-Performance Director at Cricket Ireland said, “We are delighted to confirm this historic tour to Pakistan and appreciate the support of the Pakistan Cricket Board in arranging the tour. This year will be 25 years since the two women’s sides first met on the field, and will be the first time in five years an Ireland Women’s side has played in Asia. Ireland and Pakistan have a deep cricket bond in both women’s and men’s cricket – and we will be as delighted to welcome them to Ireland in July as we will be to visit Pakistan in November.”
